Congratulations to knifemaker Jim Elliott, who I saw featured today, April 30th, 2013, in Highlands Today, an Edition of the Tampa Tribune. Jim is featured in the publication’s “Agri Leader” section for growing hundreds of varieties of orchids, and of course, for being a spectacular knifemaker.
While Highlands Today focuses on his prize-winning orchids, they do give a shout-out to his knives, including an image of the first knife he ever made. BLADE and blademag.com salute his knifemaking, of course, with honorable mention for his apparent green thumb, the latter of which landed him several awards at the seventh annual Orchid Show in Lake Placid two weeks ago.
